The Movie: Targets (1968)
What Is It?: Peter Bogdanovic’s first film is also Boris Karloff’s final film worth mentioning, and it is an elegiac send off for the great actor. Karloff and Bogdanovic both play barely disguised versions of themselves as the actor prepares to present one of his old-fashioned movies at a drive-in where a modern day monster ends up after shooting random people.
Why Today?: On this day in 1969, Boris Karloff dies.
